Coolrec and Kingspan partnership: further evidence of the recycling potential of refrigerators
28 October 2022
Coolrec, a subsidiary of Renewi and the leading European recycler of electrical and electronic waste, is always on the lookout for partners with which to develop innovative, circular economy solutions. Kingspan, a key player in the field of insulation materials, is one such partner.
The insulation gas from Coolrec's recycled refrigerators is distilled and purified by Zimmerman, before being used by Kingspan to manufacture insulation panels. For Kingspan, using recycled materials reduces both its CO2 emissions and its environmental impact. In fact, 300 tons of recycled insulation gas from refrigerators equals 300 tons of CO2 reduction.
